Loopy Mango Big Cotton Yarn

100% Pure Cotton

48 yards (43 m) 3.5 oz. (100 g)

Made In Peru

This yarn is dyed naturally and hand spun.

This yarn is great for people with wool allergies and for warmer climates

This soft chunky cotton yarn is perfect for quick projects - 2 balls is enough for a beanie, 3 for a fringe scarf, 8 for a long vest, 5 for a baby blanket.  To see all Loopy Mango projects with this yarn see our Big Cotton DIY kits.

One ball knits up in 30-60 minutes.  

If you would like to knit a beanie or kitty hat, you will need two skeins of Big Cotton. 

 

Blanket Measurements and Skeins Needed (Using size 19 needle):

28'' x 34''  5 skeins (Big Cotton Baby Blanket)

28'' x 40''  6 skeins (Nantucket style)

30'' x 50''  8 skeins (Montauk style)

Five skeins of Big Cotton will make a throw that's 28'' x 34'' (70cm x 76cm) so that's 28 times 34, so 952 square inches (70 times 76 = 5320 square cm). You will then divide 952 by 5 (we had 5 skeins), which gives us 192 square inches per skein. So if you want to make, for example, 28'' x 40'' blanket you need to multiply 28 by 40 which gives you 1120 and divide that number by 190, so 5.8 (6) skeins!

Recommended needle size: US 15 (10 mm), US 19 (15 mm), US 36 (20 mm).

NOTE:  with naturally dyed Indigo color some staining may occur.

Care: hand wash cold water and lay flat to dry.
